Advances in Cover Crop Management Webinar: Maximise the Nutrient Use Efficiency Benefit

Date : 5th March 2024 | 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Venue : Online

Cover crops can be very effective at protecting and improving soil and water quality by providing soil cover over winter, retaining nutrients that would otherwise have been ‘lost’ via leaching and erosion. They can also help to control weeds and soil-borne pathogens and pests. For the benefits of cover crops to be fully realised, understanding their crop available nitrogen supply and long-term impact on nitrate leaching and crop performance is crucial.

Join ADAS for this free webinar to hear about the latest water company funded research conducted by ADAS on cover crop management, focusing on cover crop destruction (grazing with sheep, mechanical & chemical), catch crops versus companion cropping following vining peas, over-winter nitrate leaching losses and impacts on cash crop yields and quality.

The importance of incentive schemes to support cover crop use will also be discussed.
